"I prayed for this child and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him" 1Samuel 1:27

Monday, March 21, 2011


The reason I started this blog was because of my passion for the unloved and unwanted orphans in this world. God has blessed my life by allowing me to be mom to one of "the least of these" kids. And God willing, we will be adding another one to our family in the next few months. But when I started this, I didn't know that part of the plan, but I did know without a doubt that I was suppose to do something. So, I decided the very least I could do was to try and raise awareness to anyone who would look and listen. Now, I will be the first to tell you that its hard to look at some of the pictures that I've shown on some of my previous posts. I've had people say to me, "thats just so depressing", or "it just makes me cry".......Yes, it is depressing and it makes me cry too. But, it also makes me know that I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. We are all called to do something for "the least of these."  I know not everbody is called to adopt, but I believe there are ALOT more people that God DOES call, but they look for, and find, excuse after excuse to not do it.  They just won't take that leap of faith, and by not doing it, they are missing the CHANCE OF A LIFETIME!  Just sayin.

Ok, on to the next VERY IMPORTANT part of this post.......PRAYER.  Not everyone can or will adopt, but everyone CAN pray, and that is what I'm asking from you right now. I know there are tons of needs right here in our own community, maybe right next door or perhaps right in your own home but I am asking, if you could find the time and find it in your hearts to please add  these families and their little ones to your prayer lists.

This is Kirill and his mom. This family has been trying to bring him home for months now and they finally got

their court date and everything looked good. After 5 hrs. in the court room the judge DENIED their adoption. The facilitators, the director of the orphanage, the parents and everyone else in the court room couldn't believe what they were hearing.........NO.    NO.  Adopt a healthy child, ok. But not this child. Not a "defective" child.
Never before has a child with down syndrome been adopted from this region. And there are two other families in this same country, awaiting this same judge in just a few weeks. Their kiddos also have special needs . Needless to say, they are scared to death.
The Davis family is appealing this decision and will know the outcome in 2 weeks. But their hearts and spirits right now are shattered. They have held Kirill in their arms, they have kissed his sweet face and laughed and played with him everyday since they've been in country. They have held him in their hearts for months now while they have been separated by an ocean. I am asking that you would join me and others who are praying for this family and this little one. Pray that God will give them peace of mind while they wait. Pray that God will hold Kirill safe and sound until they can get him out. Pray for the judge and the prosecuter hearing this adoption case,  that their hearts will be softened and they will come to see that these littles ones are loved and wanted and that they have great value.

This little one is Carrington.

Right now Carrington is fighting for her life at Cooks Childrens in Ft. Worth. She and another precious treasure were adopted from EE by the Burmans. They got back to the US on March 17th and went straight to the hospital. You see, under those fluffy pjs, was this pitiful little body. Only after lovingly changing her to put on her new clothes to leave the orphanage did they discover just how tiny she really was. Carrington is 3 1/2 and weighs only 11 pds. She was clinging to life by a thread. They prayed she would just make it to the US, until they could get her help.

These are the pictures that are so hard to look at. These are the kids that are laying in cribs or beds, day after day, night after night, unwanted and unloved.

PRAY.  and then pray some more.

These kids are saved ONE AT A TIME.

I have heard so many times......."Kim, you can't save them all."
Well, I have a couple of come backs for that, but I'm going refrain from them right now. But we can pray. EVERYBODY can pray for these families and these kids.
Don't miss out on a chance to be a part of this story. Be a part of bringing Kirill home. Be a part of helping to pray Carrington back to life.

This is being a part of the BODY OF CHRIST.

Thanks and if they could, the Davis' and the Burmans would thank you too.

For more information on adopting one of these treasures or if you feel led to be a prayer warrior for one of them, oh how they need our prayers, or if you want to give in the way of a donation towards their adoption, please go to Reece's Rainbow.

Make a difference...........BE that difference.

  1. Kime, beautifully written, but hard to digest, we all are so complacent as we see it really happening to others. My eyes & my heart have been dramatically changed over these long days, weeks & months since you & Rick started on this journey & just knowing that this 11 lb. child is in Cook's Children Hosp just 2 1/2 hours away from our front door steps. IT IS REAL !!!!!!!!
    It is real, PLEASE folks, pray for these children & their "FOREVER FAMILIES."
